Ever wondered how to say ‘cute’ in Korean? Unlike English, the Korean word for cute is used a lot! You can use it to describe something cute, such as a puppy or doll, or you can use the word to pay somebody a compliment.
In fact, many people in Korea want to be seen as ‘cute’, and will behave in ‘cute’ ways. This is known as 애교 (aegyo). People acting in this way will be pleased to hear you describe them as ‘cute’, so make sure you learn this word so that you can make lots of friends in Korea.
Note: If you want to say cute as in ‘handsome’, such as ‘check out that cute guy over there’, then you should use the word for handsome instead.
